The Dirt on Turbine Soot
When operating aircraft such as a King Air, TBM or Meridian there is one unfortunate and unavoidable problem affecting all turboprop operators, CARBON SOOT.
Soot is a greasy substance formed in fuel rich environments such as the combustion chamber or exhaust pipe and is produced by the incomplete burning of jet fuel. Soot includes the fine black particles, mainly composed of carbon and can even consist of acids, chemicals, metals, soils, and dust. This byproduct creates unsightly marks and discoloration on aircraft exterior and exhaust stacks. Temperature changes during flight only worsen the adhesion of soot to the exterior of the aircraft.
The best solution to combat the negative effects of soot build up are to remove and protect.
Now, you may be thinking there is no easy way to remove this stubborn contaminant. Removal of soot from engine exhaust with the help of Turbine Soot Master can be done with just a terry cloth and Turbine Soot Master Spray.
No water needed. You read that correctly. Turbine Soot Master is waterless.
